We knew that Matthew Reveles was too good a singer/songwriter to keep all to ourselves. The dudes got a massive amount of talent coming out his ying-yang, and hes been filling local venues like Modified Arts and Trunk Space with his rootsy, six-string strummings month after month. (Our personal favorites are the Dylan-esque cover of Danny Boy and the country-fried ditty Mile of Defeat, both of which can be found on Reveles most recent album, Well Meet Halfway.) The musician will be spending the first part of January touring a slew of Western states, spreading his folk-pop at such out-of-town venues as The Woodshed in Salt Lake City, The Hi-Dive in Denver, and Burts Tiki Lounge in Albuquerque.
Before he becomes the toast of said cities, Reveles will hold a tour-kickoff show at Yucca Tap Room.
